Madness descended on Geraldton, Western Australia over the weekend as triple J gave the collective masses the best “One Night Stand” of their lives (probably). With Urthboy, Boy & Bear and Alison Wonderland all on the lineup with their own special guests, triple J once again pulled off bringing one hell of a live music experience to a small town that misses out. Coming from a town similar to Geraldton, I can attest to how special events like this are and how important they are for the creative scene and community as a whole. Nothing brings people together like live music, and the footage of Urthboy bringing out Sampa The Great is proof of this.
In the thick of his set, Urthboy had the whole town of Geraldton in his hand as he brought out Sampa. Fresh from , jumping on festival bills around the country and just days out from graduating university, Sampa made the stage her own as she helped Urthboy perform their track, Second Heartbeat. Quickly whipping the crowd into a frenzy, their energetic and infectious vibe was quickly picked up by the huge crowd, who gave it right back to them. Check out the video below:
